chickpea program

Categorised under:

Catalogue: Ground Cover
The ICARDA -Australia crop protection project for pulses involves an ongoing exchange of pulse lines that have been bred at ICARDA, developed further in Australia and returned to ICARDA as agronomically-improved material for further development such as disease resistance... In the chickpea program, which has already resulted in several recently-released varieties with resistance to ascochyta blight, ICARDA is working with the Department of Primary Industries Victoria (DPI) at Horsham and the centre for Legumes in Mediterranean Agriculture (CLIMA) in Perth to screen chickpea breeding material for Fusarium wilt... Dr Bayaa explains that suitable germplasm and/or breeding material identified first at ICARDA is sent to CLIMA, the Victorian DPI, NSW DPI at Tamworth and the University of Adelaide. "..
